  2. As the water purifies as it ascends through fire let it purify within all and bring a new age. An age where ignorance can be seated in the past where it belongs, for in ignorance is where mistakes are made and lessons are to be learnt.

  3. That was so nice.. It feels so earthly to me, I hope everyone has a good feeling in their hearts when they here this.. It's as if a piece of heaven fell into earth. But then again this song was composed from factual origins of history, Thank you.

  4. Absolutely beautiful! I had no idea that the Psalms could be brought to life in such a magnificent way. As a Christian I read my favourite Psalms daily and other Psalms as well. I have imagined them put to music and being sung. What you have done far surpasses my imagination. I could be sitting in the company of King David, your music and voices sounded so authentic. Love and blessings 💖🙏

  5. This is not sung using any of the Jewish traditions of ancient Hebrew. The singers are using the pronunciations and accent of modern Israeli Hebrew. Modern Israeli Hebrew was manufactured by Central European Jews who were philosophically atheistic, but cultural and zionist Jews at the same time. These European Jews resented their Yiddish and their Ashkenazi pronunciations of Biblical Hebrew, and so created a "new" Hebrew that is soulless and without history.

    The absence of the gutteral sounds, the option of using the Germanic "resh" (instead of the rolling resh), the absence of the strong "th", the weak "th", the absence of the strong "gimmel", the soft "gimmel", etc etc. Hebrew is a Semitic, not a Germanic language. You have been brainwashed by your secular Ashkenazi educators that modern Hebrew is a legitimate expression of the language. This is madness par excellence. And yet you choose to use this modern Hebrew instead of one of the many ancient Jewish traditions that exist, like my own Yamani tradition, or the traditions of the Jews of Mesopotamia – the two most ancient traditions we know. It makes no sense whatsoever.

    P s. My original diatribe was deleted for some reason so I never received a response.

  6. I listen to this song often, have been for a couple of years now. I totally love the instruments, the beat, and the way Tayla's voice blends with it all!!! Hypnotic, so melodic, so beautiful, I can't say enough about the beautiful sounds of this song. Yet, that is not why I am commenting here today… I believe this song may have contributed to saving my life!!! I was camping on Oct. 13th, 2019, in the Angeles National Forest in California, not far from my home. My son and his friend had already gone to bed in the tent about 30 feet behind me, and I had just finished a late night steak dinner when my dog barked 4 times at something down the road. I stood up and turned on my headlamp only to see eyes staring back at me!!! I couldn't believe my eyes, but it was true, it was a mountain lion staring at us. I immediately grabbed a log and a big stick and started banging them over my head in an attempt to scare this lion away from us. It took about 5 minutes of me yelling, and banging, to get that lion to finally leave. Weeks later when I was home listening to Psalms 104 I wondered what the rest of the Psalm said, so I looked it up in my Bible. Much to my surprise the Psalm continues, and in line 21 it states savage lions roaring for their prey, claiming their food from God. I couldn't believe my eyes, I reread it over and over again. It said God tells the lion which prey is it's food, and which is not it's food. That night in the campsite I came to believe God had sent that lion away, because my wood banging, and yelling, didn't seem to be working. Yet, now after reading the rest of Psalm 104 I not only believe that God sent that lion away, but that my listening to Yamma Ensemble singing Psalm 104 somehow helped save my life that night, with that lion. The connection I have to Psalm 104, the connection I have to God, to nature, somehow made that lion go away. He wanted not only me, my steak, but my dog too!!! It had to be one of the most terrifying five minutes in my life. Yet, somehow that lion choose to leave us alone. Some kind of miracle!!! Hunting season had just started two days before, blood was in the air, and the gun fire stirred them up, the forest ranger said. He said I was very lucky!!!

  7. I am has made man with many wonderful gifts praise is one of them he makes his ministers a flame of fire reaching to the heart and it melts like wax

  8. I have a question about the instrument that the brother is playing at the beginning please. And how do you find the notes on the strings so skillfully when there seems to be no markings on the fret board as there are with western style guitars ? And what is the name of the instrument please ? Thank you and Blessings in the name of Yeshua ~ Love from David in Australia.

  9. Mi corazón bate diversamente con esta hermosa melodía, saludos desde Italia, soy ecuatoriana y aprecio mucho la bella música.💛💛💙❤

  10. Magnificent, I wonder if ithe music played during David's Kingdom on his court sounded somewhat like this. You get goosebumps through the whole song !

  11. Yamma, if you would be happy to witness if you apply second voice and quinta (Like in Georgian spiritual singng) – you would open magic in this melody. I mean – I would be glad to, I can hear it in my head, but I am not musician – not good with instruments. But I am sure – applying semitic melodies to quinta would be absolutely stunning. Please try it once. Maybe listen to some Zarzma monastery tracks for inspiration. I can send you some.

  12. These are Greek rhythms 100 percent.
    I love Israel with all of my heart, BUT this is Greek:)
    The language, of course ,is Hebrew.
    I cannot verify Ancient or not.
    It's beautiful nonetheless.

  13. Sung in modern Hebrew, which is pronounced closer to German than authentic Hebrew, thanks to the racist exclusion of Arab Jews from the revival of Hebrew in Israel.

  14. IT IS WRITTEN …GENESIS 49: 22-29 = MATTHEW 1: 45 YESHUWA [ YESHUA ] OF NAZARETH , THE SON of Joseph [ Joseph of Genesis 49 :22- 26

  15. this music is my inner soul of offering and longing in joy and sadness to the sbolute love honor of my Lord – seems to me I am a stranger as borned German in my own country- my soul is arabian or jewish – may God guide me home ! Everyone !!!!!Whats the name of this instrument – I am classical guitar player- but this here and the indian sitar is much better !-

  16. Summoning my inner Jewish spirit, im a Christian,but u know we are in the same root, i knew who's David, Aaron, Moses and Jehovah

  17. It's so beautiful. Thank you for including the translation as well.

  18. Sweet music, but this modern arabic rock music has nothing to do with the biblical culture and also the pronunciation is a fake.

  19. Awesome, love this. Thanks for doing the scholarship….finding and devouring old old books and books of music can turn into the pursuit of a lifetime!

  20. Psalms are so powerful and in Hebrew they are perfect! Your musical version is pure inspiration…
